Crackheads. Chocolate-covered espresso beans are not the first thing that comes to mind when I hear the name, but that’s what these are. Some of the beans are covered in dark chocolate and some are covered in white chocolate. They’re made by a small startup candy company called Osmanium out of Milwaukee, Wisconsin and this is their first and only product.
I’ve had a number of other brands of chocolate-covered espresso/coffee beans, so how do these compare? Quite well, actually. The dark chocolate doesn’t seem to have the bitterness that some dark chocolate has and is pretty good on its own (discovered by sucking the chocolate off of a bean). While not a huge fan of white chocolate in general, the white chocolate paired with the espresso bean was surprisingly good. Putting the white chocolate in the same box as the dark chocolate was a brilliant idea and really sets it apart from other chocolate-covered coffee beans. A 1.3oz box runs about $2.
